Architect, woodworker, sculptor and engineer, brother of
Giuliano da Sangallo. The earlier part of his career was overshadowed by
that of his brother, with whom he ran a workshop in Florence for nearly 40
years until the latter’s death. Their first known work of collaboration is
the Crucifix (1481) for the high altar of SS Annunziata, Florence. This
was followed by a model (1482) for the church and monastery of the Badia,
Florence, the seating (1487–8) in the refectory of S Pietro, Perugia, and
a model (1491) for S Maria Maddalena dei Pazzi, Florence. Antonio was also
active as a military engineer, occasionally representing his brother on
the construction sites of fortifications. The first independent work
attributed to him (c. 1490) is the Crucifix for the church of S
Gallo (destr.), which is now kept in SS Annunziata, Florence.
